Welcome to


Are you searching for the best method to improve your swim fitness and technique using land training?

Our experienced swim and fitness coaching, will provide you with personalised swim strength training sessions, which you can do online in your home or garden with us via Zoom or Google Duo.

Missing swimming...!? We are too! All is not lost though unless you don't use these for land-based training! This is how to use your swim bands with the best technique and an intro to some short interval sets.

Watch this video for learning the correct swim bands technique 

We have some spaces left on our twice-weekly Swim fitness core strength classes on zoom on Tuesdays at 7.30pm for one hour. (Registration required for the zoom link).

As we would normally be doing base training in the pool with longer swim sets and focusing still on technique, and building the aerobic foundation needed for later in the training year, we have added more of a cardio and muscular endurance focus to our zoom classes with much more swim bands / stretch cords work.

Our training covers:

  • Building your core strength

  • Swim bands intervals and technique training

  • How to use swim bands and the best exercises

  • Bodyweight exercises for strength endurance

  • Functional training for swimming and triathlon

  • Cardio training including Boxercise


Alternatively, if these times don't work for you, we can set up a weekly session, whether you're looking for training for yourself or for a small group of friends/training partners, we have the right training programme for you.


Using swim bands can reap dividends with your training come summertime when the lakes can re-open, and sea swimming is a much better temperature. We are expecting reductions in stroke count, better stamina, improved pacing control and being able to maintain better technique for longer! Interested? 

We are hoping to be coaching group pool fitness and technique sessions back at Aldershot Garrison from May 17th 2021 and Coached and Group Open water swim technique and fitness sessions on the south coast from the 1st May 2021, in the Solent all things being well!
